Welcome to the Connecticut Burns Care Foundation and The Arthur C. Luf Children’s Burn Camp.

The Connecticut Burns Care Foundation, Inc. is a not for profit 501 (c)(3) charitable organization established in 1978. It is comprised of 10 volunteer Board Members with an office located in Milford, Connecticut.

Through the years, it has grown in stature as a leading educational and funding resource in support of burn safety and burn care.

In 1991, the Connecticut Burns Care Foundation Board of Directors established a children’s burn camp for severely burned children between the ages of 8 and 18. There is nothing more compelling than helping kids. We are honored to provide this most important service to children burn survivors who become part of a camping experience of a lifetime at our beautiful 176 acre setting in Union, Connecticut. All children attend free of charge. The Arthur C. Luf Children’s Burn Camp is the only one of its kind in the Northeast.
